Storyline

Television medical drama in soap-opera style. Surgeons Jeffrey Geiger and Aaron Shutte battle valiantly for their patients, often coming into conflict with the hospital administration, run by Dr. Phillip Watters. Their cases are usually ethically complex, highly sensationalistic, and very melodramatic. Meanwhile, Jeffrey and Aaron, who are best friends, commiserate about the shambles their tumultuous personal lives have become.... Written by Tad Dibbern <DIBBERN_D@a1.mscf.upenn.edu>

Trivia

Premiered on a Thursday in the U.S., the same night as ER (1994). "Hope" was trounced in the ratings and moved to another night. Noah Wyle and Peter Berg appeared on each others shows in uncredited or voice-over roles. In one storyline, "Hope" did a commercial that looked exactly like the opening credits to ER (1994).

User Reviews

Chicago Hope is a very well made drama and it involves doctors looking out for the welfare of patients, it's a must see
20 January 1999 | by drumSee all my reviews

When Chicago Hope first came on the air in 1994, the cast was superb, it starred Adam Arkin, Mandy Patinkin and Hector Elizondo, what a shame that Mandy Patinkin Left. I really thought he made the show work out well and gave it humor and excitement. I hope he returns.
